The PrintBox Cloud Print as a Solution to Workflow Optimization in Print on Demand

Goran Belamarić, Aleš Vahčič

We observe two significant trends in computing today, the shift towards web/cloud-based applications and the proliferation of web-connected mobile devices. As these web apps and mobile devices have become more capable, users are expecting the same capabilities from them that they have on their PCs, and printing is near the top of that list. Replicating the complex printing architectures of traditional PC operating systems on these new class of devices is not desirable and often not feasible. Nobody in the printing ecosystem - users, developers, print manufacturers - wants to extend the “driver mess.” One of the promissing new developments in the area of print on demand is the trend towards cloud printing. The well publicized Google Cloud Print has as its goal to set a new standard where individuals can print from any device to any cloud enabled printer. GCP eliminates the need for drivers and brings full-featured printing to a new generation of mobile and web-based applications. PrintBox is extending this wision to simplify the workflow from print request to delivery. The workflow optimization is achieved through inhouse cloud software and hardware products which enable the lowest cost of black and white and color print to the final customer. The goal is to set a new standard of printing where individuals and companies can print any digital content including copyright materials from any internet connected device at any time.

Patrik Ervells latest collection is ironically titled “Software”ADIDAS ORIGINALS TUBULAR SHADOW. In the notes from the presentation, Ervell says he was interested in developing tension between nostalgia and sci-fi,NIKE ZOOM WINFLO 3 and even included 90s cyberpunk amongst his influences. Ervell developed this point of view by creating an imaginary software company called Idegen software systems. He then re-appropriated the company’AIR JORDAN XXXI MENs logo in several of the collection’s garments. Elsewhere,MBT TARIKI MEN mohair coats with oversized lapels made an appearance alongside mock neck tees,NIKE AIR JORDAN RETRO 5 police-inspired ribbed sweaters,MBT FORA GTX WOMEN flight bombers, and polyurethane leather coats. The setting was also suitably dystopian, and the resulting ambiance was something akin to if the creators of Deutschland 83 and Hackers met up and decided to create a collection… We mean that as a compliment.Yesterday afternoon,JORDAN CP3 IX MEN artist JR spent the day working on his latest collaborative piece with Daniel Arsham in Greenpoint,NIKE AIR MAX 90 Brooklyn,MBT KIMONDO GTX MEN NYC. Connecting the lines between art, architecture, dance and theater, Daniel Arsham has been known to subvert existing architectural structures in unconventional,NIKE CLASSIC CORTEZ NYLON playful ways; confusing and confounding the expectations of space and form.
